A Failure From the Beginning

If I care about you more

than you care about me,

this is bound to fail.

We both have to work

at this for it to last.

We both must make

the other a priority

in their thoughts

and in their hearts

for us to be together.

No one said that

it would be easy;

no one said it would

last forever.

But it could if we both

put in the effort

it takes to love.

No relationship ever endured

when its members sat idling.

Love takes work.

It’s more than a feeling,

It involves action.
